Jessica Ausel – Graduate, University of Wisconsin Platteville

“The 2017 conference in Pasco was my first experience with the WSRA, and I met many great individuals that are inspirations for the field of solid waste management.  Being new to the field, I think that the WSRA Conference was a valuable experience.  The diversity of projects throughout Washington was interesting to learn about, and I am excited to see new innovations and ideas as I become more involved. My biggest take-away from the conference was that I was able to observe the scope of work for many different facets of the solid waste field. This is most valuable to me because it has given me more insight into what shape I want my career to take, and what direction I want to work towards.  And most importantly, this conference helped me feel more confident in pursuing this line of work!”
